Why we Worship

PSALM 47

Clap your hands, all peoples!
  Shout to God with loud songs of joy!
For the LORD, the Most High, is to be feared,
  a great king over all the earth.
He subdued peoples under us,
  and nations under our feet.
He chose our heritage for us,
  the pride of Jacob whom he loves.

God has gone up with a shout,
  the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.
Sing praises to God, sing praises!
  Sing praises to our King, sing praises!
For God is the King of all the earth;
  sing praises with a psalm!

Why Sing?

God reigns over the nations;
  God sits on his holy throne.
The princes of the peoples gather
  as the people of the God of Abraham.
For the shields of the earth belong to God;
  he is highly exalted!

Purpose: | To explore how worship can engage both the mind and the heart

Commentary: |

For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my mind is unfruitful. So what shall I do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my understanding; I will sing with my spirit, but I will also sing with my understanding. 1 Corinthians 14:14-15

Worship in the church has regrettably bowed down before the idol of technique. The content of songs has been homogenized, as images have been asked to assume the role of words, and as a result understanding has become fuzzy.

Those subjective twins of emotion and feeling have become  the criteria for effectiveness, as the objectivity of substance has been unceremoniously relegated to the back of the worship bus.

Style has won out over substance. Song is now a synonym for worship. MORE THAN A SONG is intended to find a way that both the heart and the mind might sit side by side on that bus. May the Lord bless you as you read.
